ATD SCC Networking Guidelines

One mission of ATD is to facilitate connection among its professional members.  The network that you build through the chapter should be viewed as an enhanced extension of the products and services you currently provide to your internal and external clients.  Appropriate networking that is comfortable for all parties is part of that process.  We therefore strongly suggest following these guidelines:

  • ·       The membership directory is not a solicitation tool.  No member (or non-member) is to undertake a mass mailing campaign using the directory to sell products, services or job search.

  • ·       Effective networking involves building relationships that are mutually beneficial.  At ATD events, vendors should not introduce themselves for the sole purpose of selling their products or services during meetings.

  • ·       Only upon specific invitation may members discuss their services or provide additional information to a prospective client or employer.

  • ·       Members and guests should not distribute or leave promotional materials on meeting tables unless the materials are part of the presentation or approved by the board of directors.  Members are welcome to leave promotional materials on the designated resources table during the meetings they attend.

  • ·       It is understood that members may selectively contact members at their businesses during which time they may discuss their products or services or employment needs.  However, they are to exercise good business judgment.

  • ·       Members are requested to inform their guests about the networking guidelines prior to attending a meeting.

We hope these guidelines will help provide a comfortable, professional and pleasant environment for members and guests.
